  • 1/2 cup (60 grams) white spelt or all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (30 grams) rye flour or whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup (30 grams) barley flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup (66 grams) cane sugar
  • Pinch freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • Semisweet chocolate, tempered or melted, or powdered sugar, for coating


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and lightly grease a mini donut pan or use a silicone one.
  2. Sift the white spelt, rye, barley, and baking powder together. Whisk in the sugar, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, milk, vanilla, and egg.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Do not overmix or your donuts may be rubbery.
  5. Fill each donut cup 1/2 to 3/4 of the way full with the batter. You can do this with a spoon, but I prefer using a piping bag to fill each cup evenly and cleanly. It’s important not to overfill or as the donuts rise, you’ll lose the hole.
  6. Bake until the donuts spring back when touched, 6 to 10 minutes depending on the size of your donuts pan. Let cool completely on a wire rack; then dip in melted chocolate or dust with powdered sugar.
